“I’m Diana Lippert, the one and only! I grew up in rural East Peoria, always having mulitple pets. From dogs, cats, rabbits, ducks, etc. During summers, I’d spend time with my grandparents in southern Missouri. They had a small farm and I was always out with the critters. Once I got older I attended ICC and Midstate College and got my Associate’s Degree in Business. My goal was to run my own business and do something that I loved. About 10 years after I graduated I got my start. I worked for another pet sitting service in the area. After 4 years the original owner decided to sell. Well, the new owner did not need an office manager or a full-time sitter and that freed me from my contract, and I was able to start my own service. I started Petsitting by Diana on June 1, 1997. Time has gone by so fast I can still remember the very first client calling me. God has blessed me so much and I thank you for allowing me and my sitters to do something we love and make a living at it. I could never see myself doing anything else. I love pet sitting!”

“Hi, my name is Joan. I’m from the Dunlap area, and currently live in Chillicothe, I’ve been close to animals since childhood and was raised with dogs, cats, rabbits, and goats. I also work in the veterinary field, which is how I met Diana almost 20 years ago! I love what I do and it is great to be able to care for pets in their home environments. I’m currently owned by three spoiled cats: Janey, Mogwai, and B.”

Hi, My name is Andrea. I'm from the West Peoria area originally but spent a couple years out East attending community college as well as nannying for a family for three years. I moved back a few years ago and couldn't think of a better place to be! I am pretty big animal lover myself as my family and I have 5 dogs of our own and a couple other odds and ends for animals. My family has always been known as a bit of a zoo family but we wouldn't have it any way else! I hope to one day become a Veterinarian as that's been a dream of mine since I was six years old!
Hi, My name is Lisa. I grew up in East Peoria and have lived here all my life and had dogs and cats most all my life. I love animals of any sort. I am a Mother to two grown boys who have became two awesome and respectful young men who love pets as well. I have a 5 year old grandson and another grand baby on the way. My grandson shares the feeling of loving these animals too and lives visiting the zoo. It makes my heart happy to watch him with any animals. He currently has 4 cats and 2 dogs and also 2 ducks. He loves each of his pets with all his being. My daily motivational words: life is short, so try to enjoy each day to the fullest and make it count. So add a smile to someone's day!!!
